If you love ribs, there might be a few things you don’t love about them. 1) There’s not a lot of meat on the bone, and 2) They’re a bit messy to eat. Not English ribs. English ribs have much more meat—a single rib can serve two or three people. Because they’re meatier, they can also be eaten with a knife and a fork. You don’t have to pick them up with your hands, and they also look more elegant on the plate.
If you haven’t seen English ribs at your butcher shop, show your butcher this photo, and he’ll know how to cut them for you.
